bill. today, the president basically said, no more. y'rp+ing this dumb fight. i am not going to do it again. >> i want to send a very clear message to people here. we are not going to play that game next year. if congress in any way suggests that they're going to tie negotiations to debt ceiling votes, and take us to the brink of default once again, as part of a budget negotiation, which, by the way, we have never done in our history, until we did it last year, i will not play that game. because we've got to break that habit before it starts. >> republicans have a debt ceiling fake crisis habit and the president says he'll break it. and he's backed up by the treasury secretary and the leader of the democrats in the house. >> do you agree with alan greenspan, that we ought to just eliminate the debt ceiling? >> oh, absolutely. >> you do? will you propose that? >> well, you know, this is something that only congress can solve. congress put it on itself. we've had 100 years of experience with it. and i think only once, last summer, did people decide to use it to threaten default on th
in the west bank and east jerusalem may kill any hopes of peace. we'll dive deep lie into this issue. >>> rp says it's not changing plans for the controversial housing development in east of jerusalem also developments in east jerusalem. this is despite getting a diplomatic mackdown recently from australia, five european countries and the united states bought in on this yesterday. now here's why this is such a big deal. the proposed construction would effectively cut off the west bank from cities of like bethlehem and ramallah, will cut them off from jerusalem. and that's important for the palestinians, it would mean that they couldn't get to east jerusalem, which they would eventually claim as the capital of their nation if that is to be. the large israeli settlement town of ma ale adumim would be connected to jerusalem directly. vice president for new initiatives and a distinguished scholar at the woodrow wilson international center. always good to talk to you. israel defined as i international opposition mounts. do you buy the political posturing aingele? there's an upcoming election. it'
their hand and disagree with a group. we are receipt ceno -- we are rp to do that. it's just the a rall i -- it's a rall is of this bystander effect. megyn: there was a book that talked about survivors. when an airplane goes down. people would be madly dashing towards the exit. but the facts show normally people sit there -- they are paralyzed in stone because they have never dealt with the situation before. they don't know what to do. so are the critics being too hard on the people standing on the subway platform just trying to catch a train one second and the next in a life or death situation who was in a life or death situation the next? >> the critics may be tough on these folks. but human beings can aspire to better. we have to look at these events and say don't just be like a piece of velcro sticking to the crowd. culturally this has tremendous implications. if nobody will reach down to save a single man's life who will be crushed by an oncoming train. who will lead at a time of desperate need in our nation. who will raise their hand and say i will take the hit. megyn: the reports a

for a change and lower rp but over 100 artists and the letter of protest to pandora. they don't want it to happen and so far that bill in congress that pandora has filed is going nowhere. tracy: no surprise. thank you very much. ashley: the president meeting with governors on the fiscal cliff, we spoke to the governor herbert earlier but as the clock ticks down for january 1st, is the president wasting time? the next guest thinks so. douglas holtz-eakin will be joining us next. tracy: look at today's winners and losers on nasdaq as we head to break. is netflix up top again, green mountain coffee doing okay as well and your losers, wind and resorts, we were just talking about those casinos. we will be right back. ashley: president obama digging deeper on its fiscal cliff stopped earlier today saying we won't cut our way out of this deficit and it starts with raising tax rates on the wealthy but my next guest says this rhetoric could drive us right over that cliff. joining me now is douglas holtz-eakin, former director of the congressional budget office. and it -- you know your numbers
